Kurt Hugo Schneider’s ‘Sorry’ Cover Includes Front-Yard Bandstand
Easter egg hunts, but instead of pastel-colored plastic shells, you unearth a keyboard, tambourine and piano fit for The Peanuts' own Schroeder: That's more or less Kurt Hugo Schneider's latest cover in a nutshell.
The YouTube artist and producer, who's posted takes on One Directions "Infinity" and Selena Gomez's "Same Old Love" in recent weeks, tackles Justin Bieber's new "Sorry" in a brand new performance video posted today (November 9) above, and thankfully, his front yard comes outfitted with all the necessary instruments to make the Purpose track a memorable one. Plus: a renegade jogger as impromptu audience!
Where the original apology-seeking tune's a thumping dance hall number, Schneider's is a slower, more considerate exploration of contrition that rests on melancholy piano. As he strides around his front yard, though, he builds on his update with hints of electronica and percussion that stems from tapping at a tree trunk instead of drums.
Justin's own video for the "Sorry" track includes a neon-tinted performance by all-female New Zealand dance squads ReQuest and Royal Family Megacrew. Plus, there's a longer short film on the way that will feature all 18 tracks from Purpose and include choreography from Parris Goebel.
